It’s not just the brogrammers. Silicon Valley’s gender imbalance starts at the top. Data collected by Catherine Bracey, who used to run the Obama campaign’s San Francisco tech office, shows that 89% of the executive teams at companies that got seed funding in the first half of 2010 were all male.
And America’s tech hub isn’t doing much better when it comes to race: The dudely founders of these companies were 82% white. Fewer than 1% were black or Hispanic.
